Forecast for the 09-10 Financial Year: We envisage that continuing first home owner interest and buying power will keep the market buoyant in Melbourne for the remainder of 2009. Dependant on bank interest rates, we could experience a leveling of the market in 2010 in the pre $500,000 range. Investors could well make a comeback in 2010 once first home owners lose their puff and buying power.
